According to the 2002 edition of the Alden Silver book, Jonathan and Abigail (Hallett) Alden did NOT have a child named Benjamin. His profile should be detached from the parents.

Sandra is correct. Can someone in the Mayflower Project please help with this?
I've set up the two Benjamins to merge with a real Benjamin.

Alden-2194 and Alden-3 appear to represent the same person because: clearly the same person

Alden-3 and Alden-2120 appear to represent the same person because: No connections for Alder-2120. Birth date is about the same. Let's merge them. Thanks.
